Reviewing All Of The Books

Earlier this year, I decided that I would review all of the books that I read. For the most part, I definitely have but over the last couple of months it has definitely gone to the wayside but that is because I have been so busy.

I wanted to do it because I annoyed myself that I reviewed books years after I read them and I often couldn't remember the plot. Trust me this is still the case, but I have kind of run out of books that I need to review this year which is weird for me. My backlog is getting lower and as I am not reading as much, I genuinely think I might run out.

This has never happened before.

This is of course quite nice because I think that it creates feelings that are much better than remembering a book from two years ago. Thinking about it at the moment does definitely make it easier as it goes into my head on a computer screen and less memory space is always a good idea.

I also do think that sometimes it does take the fun out of it though but there are a lot of benefits. I love seeing what I thought of a book at the moment because sometimes I forget but other times it is completely different and it is interesting to see. It is like my own reading journal and considering I have tried physical ones, the digital footprint is good for me.

It also meant that I was cherry-picking what I could review and what was fun before so everything does become something I had to think about. Although this is kind of an issue, I find myself talking in my head about problems so at least more people can see it.

I also did have some problems with it especially short comics as I love reading them all together rather than single issues even though they are intended that way. It is quite hard to review 20 pages but I still do it and it is my rule at the end of the day!

The final bit is of course time can be the enemy sometimes. I am really busy so I do find that I have to be in the mood for reviewing so I do end up keeping reviews for a while but I do it because I like it.

After writing all this, I'm not sure if I will do it next year as it does take so much time and as I read a lot of small things it does not fully work for me so I will see it in the future.

Who knows what 2022 holds?

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you
